    Holly Otterbein speaks with members of the Philadelphia Coalition Advocating for Public Schools as they hold a weekly rally demanding more money for the district.  Emma Jacobs talks to Congressman Pat Meehan, one of two area Republicans who broke party lines to vote against cutting funding for food stamps.  Our Friday Reporter’s Roundtable includes a bit of backstory on former Traffic Court Judge Bobby Mulgrew, who pleaded guilty to mail fraud and tax evasion yesterday, from Senior Reporter Dave Davies; and a return to the charred boardwalk at Seaside Park with Down the Shore blogger and Seaside native Justin Auciello.  Gallup Poll Editor-in-Chief Frank Newport has this week’s poll numbers.  And Elizabeth Fiedler takes us to a little known Philadelphia park hosting robotic fireflies this weekend.
